my lawn. it will knock that stuff out of the trees. >> a lot of people suffering from that right now, thanks bill. fundraising efforts to transform the historic uc theater on university avenue in berkely got a big boost today. the non-profit plans to renovate the theater this summer, all part of a $5.2 million project to transform that theater into a live concert venue by next year. more than half of the money has been raised. today, the group received a $250,000 challenge grant. saw a lot of movies there when i was a kid. mark is here now with sports, and the giants finally broke out of their hitting slump in a big way. >> it's about time. especially up in colorado. never thought i'd hear myself saying this, but thank heavens buster posey was not playing for the giants today. the underachieving, usually all- star catcher sat it out, while his replacement smacked two home runs, including a game winning grand slam in the 11th. the appropriate words for
10:52 pm
today? bye bye baby. six home runs for san francisco. it starts pretty early. michael morris had a pair of them. traveled about 455. his 5th of the year. in the 7th,down 6-5, brandon belt. he's got 7 homers already. the giants have the lead. but in the 11th, tied again. hector sanchez with a bases loaded, after they walked joaquin arias to get to him. his second homer. 5 rbi's for sanchez. despite the fact colorado scored two in the bottom half of the winning, the giants come out of it with a 12-10 victory. so much for the slump. in oakland, two young guns on the mound. one was merely good while the other sensational.
10:53 pm
he was not wearing an a's uniform. sunny gray. pretty good. however, the rangers sweep oakland out of first place as michael choi, former oakland a, with an rbi sinkle. then donny murphy who had the game winning single the other night. this time delivers the long ball, going the opposite way. greg gives up only 3 hits, but he's a loser, while martin perez, just great. second straight shut out he's thrown. donny murphy helps him out with a nice play there. a three hitter, complete game. he has thrown 26 consecutive scoreless innings. nba playoff stuff when we come back he lived up to the superman label tonight. but dwight howard also meets his kryptonite. a local kid out of oakland leads the charge. sports part 2, next.

warrior fans already know this. it's going to take a lot more than fans yelling at the top of their lungs, to get the warriors over the clips tomorrow night. but it sure won't hurt being back at the oracle after the shellacking of game 2. found a way to neutralize steph curry. steph himself is going to tell you, he first needs to play
10:57 pm
much better defense and he himself needs to spread the ball around a bit better. >> figure out how to draw up the attention that we get open shots, force the issue to get into the paint, and make plays. >> we talked about traps and all of that kind of stuff. we give up 140 every night, we're not going to win anything. so defensively is the big thing for us. >> very early in the playoff process. how about portland taking the first 2 from the rockets in houston no less. dwight howard dominating. he had 25 of houston's 53 1st half points. but managed only 7 in the 2nd half. he was backed up to say the least by lamarcus aldridge. portland goes back to their home court up 2-0.
